MSI Systems Integrators launches new cloud offerings

Includes Cloud TEC Briefing and Assessment Service

By CBR Staff Writer

MSI Systems Integrators (MSI), an IT service provider of hardware, software and services, said that it will provide new cloud offerings as part of its IT portfolio. The offerings include a Cloud Briefing through local Technology Enablement Centres (TEC) and a Cloud Assessment service.

According to MSI, the TEC Cloud Briefing helps companies explore cloud service alternatives, assess practices, and educate companies about cloud computing types and technologies. The cloud assessment builds a roadmap and implementation plan for public, private, and hybrid cloud services.

MSI’s experts can assess a company for cloud computing by understanding the company’s technology portfolio and analyse the associated benefits, costs, feasibility, risks, technologies, and implementation paths.

The company said it conducts a business assessment to determine how well a cloud would meet an organisation’s needs, and helps with vendor selection, and facilitates all migration requirements. It can also aid in designing and implementing the entire cloud service, which includes procuring softwares from vendors like Microsoft, IBM, Cisco, VMware, and others with whom MSI has partnering arrangements.

MSI said that its partnerships with cloud vendors provide an environment for comparing and contrasting cloud technologies such as IBM’s BladeCenter CloudBurst, HP’s BladeSystem Matrix, Cisco’s Unified Computing System (UCS), NetApp Virtual Dynamic Data Centre, and VMware, Citrix, Novell, Symantec, Archer Technologies, and APC.

Phil Sauvageau, chief operating officer of MSI, said: “Imagine being able to control your computer expenses by turning on – and turning off – your computer enterprise, using servers and software only when you need them. With cloud, you can allocate computing resources on-demand, provision and deprovision power as needed, and manage all your companies’ units varying workloads and processes according to each one’s unique requirements.”
